Maria Isabel Loaiza, from Ecuador, joined Lotus 20 weeks Spring Semester program in 2006.

My experience with my family here has been great and quite helpful of course. I would have nothing to recommend them; I think they are very nice and made me feel part of the family every single minute while in China. They have been very helpful and lovely to me! I am very sad for leaving! Anyway, they told me that we can still hang out together and I will for sure visit them from times to times next year.

My Chinese courses are very good and I love the atmosphere at my university. I gained a great deal of practical knowledge from this course.

I am very thankful with you for introducing me to such a nice family and making my stay in Beijing such an interesting sojourn, and of course of helping my Chinese to improve a lot faster than what it would had if not living together with a Chinese family.

Thank you again,

Maria Isabel
